pristine stable water conditions and the proper lighting, and light (small) twice a week feedings, brine size, healthy nems never need fed, give it all the above and it should produce more zooanthellae which is the color in a nem. The brighter and deeper red it is, the healthier it is. What is your lighting and tank information. They produce their zooanthellae from feeding off your light spectrum, thats why lighting is so critical to their survival.

Well, if the other anemones are doing fine under this light it should as well. It's got to repopulate itself. This takes time. The guy who sold you the anemone that had a few of them were most likely because one split many times due to stress. IMO, all of his anemones are under the weather a bit.
Feeding it tiny pieces of food a couple times a week would help too.

I feed the tank 1-2 times per week and feed the nems once per week. Small penny size pieces of a shrimp scallop and white fish mash I made

I would stick with brine shrimp size of food, just swirl Mysis or Brime around the nem, they should be sticky and they will work the food to their mouth. It takes a lot of energy for the to digest big foods. Curious do you other bta's have good color?

This one is the first one that split. The 2 walked away from each other for a week. But met up in the middle and now they lay against each other Click image for larger version

They look good, I would just stick with brime size foods, I actually never feed mine, notice the difference in the bulbs, it happened after switching from mh to led's, nothing else changed, starting to wonder if its a spectrum thing that makes the bulb, but the gbta never has
